I think, as someone who knocked on doors for Obama, that he has done everything he can, except actually say the truth, that he does not want a second term. He has done everything he can to alienate those who supported him in 2008. He is puting on a good show as to rhetoric, but with everything he does he drive those who supported him away. He is not stupid, he knows what he is doing. He wants out. He has turned his candidacy and his personal fortunes into wealth and he does not want to keep doing the job, but he is too cowardly to actually say so. He may not get what he wants as the Republicans can still nominate someone unelectable, but he is not going to care about us, he does not need us if he really does not care about being reelected. A strange and scary situation we find ourselves in.
